Still tweaking...

but so far, so good after 5 days of constant use. No KPs, no freezes, no crashes. In fact, ML is pretty polished for a Dev preview.

 

I followed besweeet's tutorial:

 

http://www.insanelym...howtopic=276024

 

Made a few changes for my situation (I'm not dual booting windows so I didn't have to replace the OSInstall files) and I'm pretty impressed with the stability of my hackintosh.

 

I'm dual booting (with two drives) Lion and Mountain Lion but I haven't used Lion since I installed ML.

 

Mobo: Intel DH55HC

CPU: Intel core i3 540 3.07ghz

Video: Zotac 8400GS 512MB DDR3 (worked OOB which wasn't the case with Lion)

Ram: 2x2gb Kingston DDR3 1333ghz

Hard Drive (boot): WD

Scorpio Black WD3200BEKT 320GB 7200rpm

Soundcard: Sound Blaster X-Fi Go! PRO USB Sound Card (worked OOB)

 

Kexts used:

FakeSMC.kext

NullCPUPowerManagement.kext

3rdParty SATA kext

hnak's AppleIntelE1000e Ethernet kext

 

Special thanks to besweeet for the great tutorial!

I can't agree more. Mt. Lion Dev Preview is amazing for something that's not even close to being finished. If this trend continues Mt. Lion is gonna rock hard when it's released.

I'm not using kernel cache...boot up doesn't seem too slow, especially since I swapped out the slower Seagate 5400rpm drive for a WD 7200rpm drive.
